Narrator Bahni Turpin gives authentic-sounding voices to the vibrant characters in this audiobook about a young woman who is struggling with her racial and cultural identity. Biracial Nevaeh, age 15, feels like an outsider among her mother's family in Harlem because of her light skin. Nor does she identify as Jewish, as her father's family wishes. When her parents separate and she moves in with her grandparents in Harlem, Nevaeh is forced to confront the racism and religious intolerance within her own family. Turpin effectively juxtaposes the quiet, introspective teen with her exuberant Jamaican-American family and her overbearing Jewish grandmother, replete with stereotypical New York accent.
